The 32nd Annual Cornelson Distinguished Lecture presents Dr. Joseph Stiglitz, professor of economics at Columbia University and recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (2001) and the John Bates Clark Medal (1979). Stiglitz is a former senior vice president and chief economist of the World Bank and is a former member and chairman of the (U.S. President’s) Council of Economic Advisers. He is known for his support of Georgist public finance theory and for his critical view of the management of globalization, of laissez-faire economists (whom he calls “free market fundamentalists”) and of international institutions such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

Due to high demand, tickets to the March 16 Cornelson Distinguished Lecture with Dr. Joseph Siglitz are no longer available.

Davidson College will be broadcasting a live stream of the lecture on the Davidson College Facebook Live Stream.
